I am looking forward to attending more classes with Matt!! Thank You." ~ Mike from Clay, NY about our Basic Range Safety Officer Training Course

…learned far more than just the Course description.

"This was my first ever experience with "live pistols & handguns". I had taken the online course & was eager and excited but at the same time nervous. There was a lot to process and assimilate but Matt showed a high level of knowledge, experience and patience that translated into a comfortable level of confidence for me. He was there for me in every aspect of safety, proper range protocols, loading & unloading my handgun as well as proper stance, sighting & shooting it with a reasonable level of success. I came out of this class with exactly the experiences I wanted to safely handle my handgun in my everyday experience. I would highly recommend this Phase II class to everyone." ~ Ray from N. Syracuse, NY about our NRA Basic Pistol Phase II Course

This was my first ever experience…

"Great class! Highly recommended for anyone new to shooting." ~ Edward from Oswego, NY about our NRA Basic Pistol Phase II Course

Great class!
